May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and though the winter left us yearning for sunlight, here are some tips to enjoy the sunlight responsibly.
Asymmetry — Is half the mole different from the other half?
Borders — Are moles irregular, scalloped or poorly defined?
Color — Are moles shades of tan and brown/black? Sometimes moles turn white, red or blue.
Diameters — Are they the size of a pencil eraser or larger?
Evolving — Has the mole or skin lesion changed in size, shape or color?
Make sure to keep your physician informed of any changes or concerns.
